Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our second stay at Wrest Point in March was in a waters edge room the night before we departed Tasmania. The rooms are comfortable with good amenities and lovely views. On arrival we were greeted at check in by a young man named Josh. Josh efficiently and professionally handled check in, valet parking and porterage by himself. What an asset to Wrest Point Josh is, his customer service stands out and is noticed.

Stayed in Water Edge. Big windows overlooking the water and beach. Really beautiful. Room Was very nice. We were very happy with it. Bed was good with a couple of pillows to choose from. The building has a 60's vibe to it which was a pleasant surprise.

It’s very misleading when you book through wrest point hotel, expecting nice rooms but you end up with a motel room from 1970 for the price of a modern hotel room.-that’s the water edge room for you! If the price was more reasonable then it would be ok, but they charge way too much for what they offer! It’s a ripoff!

What an absolute gem! I genuinely thought I must've been in the wrong place, it exceeded my expectations so much. Friendly staff, spotlessly clean (the amazing Jeanelle works tirelessly to keep things so clean, what an asset she is!), glorious views, fabulous facilities. I was in room 333 and couldn't have been happier. The most comfortable bed I've slept on in years. Excellent facilities including a great sauna and a small, indoor pool. An abundance of parking, great bars (Patrick at The Green Room was wonderful), numerous restaurants. It was hard to drag myself away from the complex! Many thanks to all the staff, particularly Dee (who checked me in) and Jeanelle (I can't tell you how clean everything was!).

I was really looking forward to my stay but was left disappointed. Rooms were really tired and in need of a revamp, mattress was also well past its used by date. Having said that It was clean, warm and quiet. Renovations are a real turn off, given the money you are paying guests should be alerted to to the inconvenience when booking. My room was located at the furthest point away from the temporary reception area, a 15 minute walk down a rabbit warren of corridors and via a lift which was difficult to find. Improve signage is needed and some details from check in staff would have helped this process.

Loved everything about our stay. We arrived 22/2/22 - and walked into room 222. Couldn't have been anything but an "omen" that our stay was going to be great!! Lovely room with a fantastic water view. Every staff member we interacted with was helpful, friendly and more than willing to 'go the extra mile'.

Fantastic view of the water. Room had everything I needed. Wonderful staff, allowed me to drop my bags earlier. When I came back to book in my bags had been taken to my room. Also when I was leaving I was able to get a porter to take my bags down for me as I cannot walk very well. Will definately stay here again.

My husband and I styed here for 3 nights in a King Waters Edge room. Staff were very friendly and helpful with any request. The bed was very comfortable, the room had everything we needed including a beautiful view. Car parking was always available (at no extra cost). We enjoyed a few drinks in the Bird Cage then dinner in Kwan Ho restaurant which were enjoyable. This is my 2nd time staying at Wrest Point and I would happily stay here again.

We enjoyed our 3 night stay in our water edge room, we had a lovely view, the room was standard motel size and was clean. It appears that it is part of an older section so if you’re after a modern room then maybe these aren’t for you but we loved it and it had everything we needed.
